Avoid vatagenic foods such as popcorn, corn chips, beans, raw vegetables, and cold drinks.
Keep out of cold drafts
Try garlic oil
Pour about 1 tablespoon of sesame oil into a small pan, and into it place 1 clove of garlic, well chopped. Cook till the garlic turns brown, then let it cool. While cooking, press the garlic into the oil. This helps the healing properties of the garlic ooze out and permeate the oil. The resulting mixture, which has an excellent fragrance, is called garlic oil. Place 5 to 10 drops (of body-temperature oil) into the ear. This will improve the hearing capacity of the auditory nerve.
Note: Oil should be used in the ear only when there is no infection.

- Alternate Nostril breathing may also be effective.
